re: UrQ with K24, anyone with track experiences??

I responded to the first query with a "very happy with my track results."
I failed to mention, however, that our urq has an intercooler that is 2x
stock size and an oil cooler that is 3x stock size.  There also is a lower
temperature thermostat and fan switch as well.  Then again, I haven't had
heat soak or overheating problems aside from ONCE when the radiator fan
fuse blew due to a shorted wire.

I let a few of the Portland track hounds drive the car, too.  I think they
all came away with big smiles.
